Beat a theme to death

It takes so much effort to make decorations, come up with a menu, plan games, etc. Make it easier on yourself and use the same theme more than once. At my house 2005 was the year of the luau. The Cub Scout Blue and Gold Banquet had a luau theme, the Christmas Parade Float was Elvis in “Blue Hawaii”, my daughter’s birthday was Island Princess, Cub Scout Day Camp was Pirates (where the boys built a wooden boat to earn their Handyman badge and then reused it as their Christopher Columbus entry in the 4th of July parade) and Vacation Bible School was Son Rock Treasure Island. Decorations, menu, games, and costumes were all reused with a slight twist for each event. Each event was unique and I cut my work in half. 2006 was the year of the Mexican Fiesta— Feliz Navidad!

Christmas Float

Can you see the pirate ship and Christmas float in the front yard?

Feliz Navidad!
